    Whatever is happening, the agents and Spurs are hard at work on the rumour mill. It may well be that it is all puff and nonsense.

    I hope so.
    The fact that make-weights keep (allegedly) being offered seems to indicate that Spurs are struggling to come up with the money for a serious cash bid.

    There may be a bit of lazy journalism here, since it's very easy to generate (just) enough circumstantial evidence to suggest that any recently arrived manager is going to return to his former side in the search for signings. Just look at Ron's arrival with us and all the accompanying rumours that he was going to sign every player in the Eredivisie."

RUMOUR MILL, August 5 - Spurs offer Romanian defender to Saints as makeweight in Schneiderlin deal

Vlad Chiriches in action for Tottenham last season

Vlad Chiriches in action for Tottenham last season

TOTTENHAM have reportedly offered Romanian defender Vlad Chiriches to Saints as a makeweight in any deal to sign Morgan Schneiderlin.

Spurs only signed the 24-year-old centre half from Steaua Bucharest last summer for £8.5m, and he went on to play 24 times for the London club in all competitions.

There is also speculation today that Louis Van Gaal will consider selling striker Javier Hernandez.

The Mexican international has continually been linked with Saints all summer, even before Ronald Koeman’s arrival as manager.

The 26-year-old has scored 37 Premier League goals for United in 48 starts plus 53 sub appearances in his four seasons at Old Trafford.
